TRANSPORT SYSTEMS IN VERTEBRATES (fig 36.1g)

CHARACTERISTICS OF VERTEBRATE BLOOD AND BLOOD CELLS

VERTEBRATE BLOOD VESSELS

  1. heart: atria and ventricles
  2. arteries [fig 36.6A] arterioles
  3. capillaries [fig 36.6c] veinules
  4. veins [fig 36.6b]

THE VERTEBRATE HEART and CIRCULATORY SYSTEM

THE HUMAN HEART (fig 36.9)

  • your heart and how it works from the American Heart Association
  • the heart from the Frankin Institute
  • to learn more about the circulatory system try this site from HUMAN ANATOMY On-Line.  In the window on the left of this web page click on the pictorial representation of the cardiovascular system or choose it from the menu on the right.  Once in, explore the many features of the site.  Try the animation of the beating heart.  Click on the markers on the images to learn more.  Use this site to gain more information about other organ systems.

to learn more about the lymphatic system, go to HUMAN ANATOMY On-Line.


This is what you should have learned in high school about respiration, from Jim Buckley, Edwards-Knox Central School, Russell, New York.  Try Mr. Buckley's quiz on human respiration for his high school students.

If you don't have your textbook, here is the Respiratory System from the On-line Biology book.
